"All at Once (It's Not Important)" as written by and Brandon Curtis Josh Garza....
Underneath the sun there is a light
I'm feeling light, but I can't move
My heart's still in a crescent veil
A watchful haze in the rushing night

A silver studded torn and tattered gown
She ruled the room and I just stared
A warning roaring miles above
Hanging over a worn-out night

And though the words we spoke were few
We were feeling something strange
I swear I thought you knew
You said "Darling, how could you?"

Remember back when we first met
It don't mean much
All those things you said, you never meant
How could I forgive and just forget?
And all that time we spent I swear we wasted
It don't mean much

And all at once it's not important
What fell in place just falls apart
Again, I guess
Not having, I can only hope
It's only time and you know I'll wait

'Cause then it's like when we first met
It don't mean much
All those things I said, I never meant
But how could you forgive and just forget?
And all that time we spent we said we wasted
It don't mean much

    General Commentthis is my favorite song off their new album. when i heard it i knew immediately. i think this about how easily someone can fall for someone, and how that feeling isnt always shared, that feeling of something special. however, he looks back and realizes it doesnt mean much, all those little things he thought were special doesnt count for much. its about how relationships can easily start and end, and sometimes you cant do anything but wait.

    General CommentThis is such a passionate song. I believe (because of the lyric and also an interview with TSM) that it's about the instant someone's heart is broken...when they start to realize (whether it's true or not) that the weight they held on the relationship was too much. This song has such a feeling of being lost and confused. It hits so close to home for anyone I play TSM for.

    General CommentRecovering from a severed relationship, the author is trying to get used to the idea of being alone. It doesn't quite register. He has invested so much love and so much time in a relationship that he and his lover thought would last eternally, so the notion that it could just end as quickly as it started seems so strange. How could all of those promises and words of devotion not mean anything if they weighed so heavy at the time. "It don't mean much" is not so much a declaration by the author as it is an attempt to grasp the idea that the other party is so ready to call it quits. A similar song to look up would be "I'm Not in Love" by 10cc.
